Authors: BORESHA
Date: 2020


Prosopis Juliflora is considered as a noxious weed in many parts of the world, since it naturalizes easily and competes strongly with other species when introduced into areas where soils are better, along the riverine areas, close to human settlements, and along roads and cattle tracks. The weed's thorns has diverse effects on animals, vehicle tyres and human beings. This paper focuses on how the BORESHA programme comes in handy in working with community groups from 18 villages in Mandera County and Gedo region to devise means of utilizing this invasive plant while contributing to household resilience.
